Chapter 70: The Colosseum
Heavens, this four-year-old boy actually faced a brawny man, as well as man in the peak Profound Stage, the he instantly won over them.
How is this possible?!
Afterwards, no one dares to block the pair’s stride anymore.
From beginning to end, Muyan continues to wear that languid and leisurely smile. She holds Xiao Bao’s hand and care-freely walks to the direction of the Colosseum.
Despite that smiling expression however, there is frost slowly burrowing deep within her bright, water clear eyes.
“This girl, I’m sorry but this leads to the backstage area of the Colosseum. The regular guests can’t enter.”
Muyan and Xiao Bao were stopped at the junction of passageway by a black-clothed ‘ghost envoy’.
The Ghost city’s Colosseum is an area reeking of blood, a place of violence and business opportunities.
The “beast” in the Beast Fighting, doesn’t just refer to Strange Beasts and Spiritual Beasts, but it also includes slaves that were sold like animals in the Ghost city.
And so, in the Beast Fighting Colosseum, you can see people fighting against people, beasts against beasts, and more predominantly people against beasts.
Only by winning will they be given a meal, have their injuries treated, and be able to keep their lives .
If they lost, it will only result in a slow and miserable death.
Visitors of the Colosseum will be on the stands, watching the Beast Fighting matches, placing bets on the slaves – or even beasts – that they favor.
To put it bluntly, be it human or beast, it is nothing more than a plaything in the hands of wealthy people.
As one can expect, the humans and the beasts that had lived in this kind of environment can be very cruel and violent.
Where Muyan wants to enter is the backstage area of the Colosseum, it is the place where these man-beasts are detained.
They are in iron cages, but seeing such a scene and feeling the dark and bloody atmosphere… even your usual martial practitioner might piss their pants in fear.
Blocked by the ‘ghost envoy’, Muyan just smiles lightly and easily flips her wrist over. A banknote appears in her hand, “I want to purchase a beast slave. This is the initial payment.”
The ‘ghost envoy’ stares blankly, the wooden face reveals a rare astonished expression, “This girl, do you know the rules of Ghost city?”
“Of course,” Muyan says heedlessly, “Only the beast slaves who won in the Beast Fighting Colosseum are allowed to be up for sale. If the slave that I picked lost, the initial payment will not be refunded.”
That is a deposit of 10,000 gold coins.
And, ghost city has a certain provision –
If there are people fighting over a purchase, then it can only be resolved by a custom of the Ghost city – using martial power to determine the winner
Regardless of life and death!
The ‘ghost envoy’ couldn’t believe that such a delicate girl like Muyan can adhere to the Ghost city’s rule of using force to determine victory.
But seeing that Muyan is so insistent, the ‘ghost envoy’ no longer persuades her otherwise, and lets her enter.
The passage leading to backstage area is awfully long.
And the further you walk in, the damper and colder it becomes. It is also permeated by a nauseating smell of decay, a horrible fishy stench.
The first thing that catches the eyes is the rows of enormous cages lining on both sides. The cages contain a countless number of ferocious beasts.
As soon as they see Muyan and Xiao Bao, they immediately spread their bloody mouths wide open like sacrificial bowls. Eyes wide open like the hole inside a bronze bell, they let out sky-shaking roars.
Muyan’s expression doesn’t change, but Xiao Bao coldly looks at the ferocious beasts on both sides.
He doesn’t even diffuse his mysterious energy. It is only the faint glare of ice-blue pupils that would make the beasts shiver as soon as they catch sight of it.
“Wuu…” The various beasts whine in horror, desperately shrinking and curling up on themselves.
Some are so timid that they even bury their heads between their legs, their massive forms trembling.
